On this week's episode of The Throw-In, Will Slattery is joined by Eoin Kelly, Tomás Ó Sé, Michael Verney and Donnchadh Boyle to discuss all the weekend's action.

Tipp legend Kelly weighs in on his county's championship demise, pointing to Michael Ryan's failure to fix his side's defensive issues as the key contributor to their Munster elimination.

Last year's All-Ireland finalists Waterford joined Tipp in exiting the championship, and the lads think that it will be manager Derek McGrath's last hurrah with the team after an eventful few years.

In Leinster, Kilkenny booked their place in the Leinster final with a comeback win over Wexford, and now face Galway once again. Kelly thinks that the Cats could be in a good position to shock the All-Ireland champions in Croke Park in a few weeks time.

In football, the controversial scenes at the end of Meath vs Tyrone are discussed, as is the overall standard of refereeing after a weekend where officials came in for criticism.

The lads also reflect on Dublin's comfortable win over Longford and Tomás Ó Sé explains why he doesn't like watching Carlow in action.
